With recognized expertise in diagnosing challenging cases and treating complex movement disorders, Stony Brook Movement Disorders is the destination for those whose conditions require the full spectrum of care from physical therapy to medical treatment to neurosurgery.

Drs. Guy SchwartzHanna Czarkowska and Carine Maurer are neurologists with subspecialty training in movement disorders, and Dr. Chuck Mikell is a neurosurgeon with expertise in the performance of neurological surgery for the treatment of cases that cannot be managed effectively through medical treatment. The neuropsychology team, led by Dr. Thomas Preston and Dr. Brian Lebowitz, works closely with the neurologists and neurosurgeons.

Stony Brook’s center also has the only Neuro-Critical Care Unit in Suffolk County, allowing the highest level of care after neurosurgery for movement disorders. A 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a week physician extender coverage facilitates pre- and post-operative care. The skilled team’s interdisciplinary approach provides a full scope of services to patients and their families.
